Description

Near the Thermae of Caracalla you can visit the Basilica of San Sisto, built by Pope Anastasius I around the 4th century. In ancient documents the roman church appears as the "Crescentianae", which was probably the name of the woman who allowed the construction. Inside the basilica you can see some beautiful paintings representing scenes from the New Testament and the relics of Pope Sixtus II, which were moved here from the Catacombs of St Callixtus.
